Gotcha. I figured I should've dug. So is this company in China & doesn't care about getting sued?

Even Apple and Samsung can't successfully sue the multitudes of Chinese bootleggers, never mind a struggling business like Games-Workshop. Chinese copyright law is very lax, as is their interpretation of copyright law beyond its borders. With a lot of hard work and money pumped in the legal department GW could theoretically sue this website and perhaps even have an injunction ordered against them to have the site shut down.

The trouble is, yoymart is one of many websites that is linked to, a Chinese eBay of sorts, and one of the premier shopping websites in China. Since GW has very few operations in China there is little leverage GW can level against the online sales giant or the courts short of a very sympathetic judge and probably a very handsome bribe. Best case scenario for GW, the sellers remove the infringing content and call it quits with very little financial consequence.

Even if Yoymart, and all the other taobao re-sellers get shut down, along with taobao itself, that still leaves tens of factories throughout China which need only find a few more distributors to be back in business.

In short, no, they aren't worried about being sued.

I used to work for what is essentially a "Chinese" company that hired many Chinese nationals.

They were great people, but intellectual property was not their concern. They would install improperly licensed software on workstations. They felt no compulsions about walking off with whole DVDs of code.

On the plus side. I'm sure I now have code I wrote in production at 4 additional companies! :x Maybe I should brag about it on LinkedIn?
